In truth, I don't think any of them are really, truly good. But the third
site I think is best. My critique of the second two on the list is that they
show p-seeds as being almost as disk shaped as bluegills, and don't
represent the background body color as more of a golden tan. At least that's
how they looked in eastern Massachusetts ponds. Try getting to the web site
of the fish illustrator Joseph Tomelleri (one or 2 m's?) and seeing what his
illo looks like, which I think is available.
